A stray puppy is brought to a shelter and adopted by a kind woman who calls him Blue and works hard to earn his trust. One day, Blue follows his nose right into trouble and wonders if he will ever find his way home.  Based on true events, Blue, Lost and Found is a story about unconditional love and second chances.

While Blue, Lost and Found was inspired by real-life events, it is not a work of non-fiction and several details of the story were changed to make it into a good picture book.  One question I am asked a lot is, “Are you the woman in the blue glasses?”  The answer is that, even though she looks like me, she is a composite character; I would be remiss if I did not mention that a primary element of the woman is Nicole Asher of Buddha Dog Rescue & Recovery, the professional who actually caught Blue and brought him to safety.  Another question people often ask is, “Did you keep Blue?” and again, the answer is no.  In real life, Blue was a foster dog and I only had him for eleven hours when he got lost, and once we caught him he went to another foster home until he was adopted by his forever family.

 

Blue, Lost and Found was brought to life thanks to the generosity and support of over 100 Kickstarter backers!  Much appreciation to:
